Learn Who We Are

  • Michelle Alvarez, CMT
    Michelle Alvarez, Medical Massage Therapist

    Michelle is a medical massage therapist specializing in injury recovery, joint mobilization,posture correction, and pain management from but not limited to the following:

    • Sciatica Symptoms
    • Thoracic Outlet
    •  Frozen Shoulder
    • Forward head posture
    • Carpal Tunnel
    • Plantar Fasciitis
    • Scar Release (c-section scars, surgery, etc.)


    She provides a thorough body assessment and intake to help customize the therapy session to fit thegoals of the patient. Using several massage techniques such as assisted stretching, PNF, deep tissue,trigger point work, myofascial release, orthopedic massage, musculoskeletal alignment, contemporarysports cupping, and Gua Sha, just to name a few.

    By adding cupping into her manual therapy, the decompressive suction from the cups are able to rapidlyfacilitate rigid soft tissue release, loosen and lifts connective tissue, breaks up and drains stagnationwhile increasing blood and lymph flow to the skin and muscles in a way that is not possible usingcompression techniques.

    Gua Sha (Gua meaning scrape and Sha meaning redness) is similar to cupping in results, but a round-edged tool is used in strokes to pressure specific areas of muscle pain allowing her to really pinpoint areas of restrictions. Some discoloration can occur from the release and clearing of stagnation, adhesions, and toxins from the body. The reaction is not bruising, but the cellular debris, pathogenic factors, and toxins being drawn to the subcutaneous layers for dissipation by the circulatory system.

  • Jessica D'Oliveira
    Jessica D'Oliveira
    Certified Massage Therapist

    Jessica has been a massage therapist since 2012 and she focuses on 'makingspace' in the body through soft tissue manipulation. Targeting areas ofpain and tightness, she works to release trigger points by scraping andcupping the myofascial layer that holds tension stress. She likes tocombine deep tissue techniques and stretching as well. Spending most of hercareer working with clients on both ends of the spectrum, from Australianfootballers to desk jockey, she has learned that overly active and barelyactive individuals experience similar injuries, so balance is key. Shealso has a Master of Science in Acupuncture from the Tri-State College ofAcupuncture in New York state.
